Old Woodward Cellar has secured the sole exclusivity to retail Zalto Glassware in the state of Michigan. The look, the design, and more importantly the impeccable balance of Zalto stemware has us in awe!! The Burgundy glass is the very best stem on the market. Just ask one of the Sommeliers at the worlds top restaurants that refuse to use anything but Zalto i.e. (The French Laundry, Le Bernadin, Brooklyn Fare, Bouley, Eleven Madison Park, & Per Se to name a few.)
The glass has such a unique design, lots of time and science went into developing such a high-end glass that you can put in the dishwasher...wait what?!? Yup it's true, dishwasher safe. Their reasoning behind why the glasses look as they do is almost extraterrestrial..“The curve of the bowls are tilted at the angles of 24°, 48° and 72°, which are in accordance to the tilt angles of the Earth. The ancient Romans utilized this triumvirate of angles with their supply repositories, finding that produce stayed fresh for a longer time, and that it also showed improved taste. Due to these cosmic parallels, we believe that a wine can reach its utmost potential in a Denk`Art (the official name of the line) glass, developing everything that is possible in the nose as well as on palate, due to these cosmic parallels.
Don't laugh... most highly acclaimed winemakers also believe in and grow their vineyards using a bio-dynamic approach. Not only is it organic, it is seen as the purest form of farming. Long story short, they are better wines and better glasses. Try the Burgundy glass for Pinot Noir's young Chardonnays, Nebbiolo, even high end Grenache, and Corvina. It will provide an out of this universe experience. If you drink good wine all the time, why use an inferior stem that you can buy at Target?
